Plugging the “ops” gap left by DevOps

Traditional DevOps

Businesses are looking to accelerate the delivery of production quality software with fewer defects, and better security. Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) also known as DevOps is a rapidly maturing practice for reducing the time and effort it takes to test and deploy code into production. The rapid automation of the integration and deployment activities is common especially on cloud-based platforms. Adding security testing into the DevOps pipeline can help address the needs of regulated, compliance and public sector focused organizations. The diagram below demonstrates a Continuous Delivery Pipeline.

The latest proven open source technologies such as Docker, Jenkins, and Vagrant, are used to isolate development dependencies. The Linux Containers inside Docker use Linux.  This allows an increased efficiency and faster deployments of the application stack, improving the velocity and delivery time of the continuous delivery process. Technologies such as a Nexus repository manager allow developers save time and provide greater security by installing from a local cache for all their artifacts instead of going out to the central Maven repository.  This makes it easier to manage various versions of dependencies, preventing things like version collisions. The diagram below demonstrates the build automation process.

Hardening DevOps and moving to DevSecOps

stackArmor’s DevSecOps engineers have full-stack expertise that includes cloud and infrastructure management in compliance with NIST SP 800-53 requirements. Injecting security and compliance processing as part of the orchestration toolchain is critical to ensure end to end security and efficiency. Technologies such as Chef, Ansible, Puppet, Yasca, SonarQube, and OpenSCAP amongst others when integrated with vulnerability scanners such as Tenable Nessus, HP Fortify and others provide a robust DevSecOps implementation.
